    After seen the list you have until now I voted for the Vindicator. Before seeing I was with the Predator. But since you already have one you can make a use of a Vindicator!
    Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

    Well as much as I love the idea of the Vindicator in my experience it always plays the same roll in every game: Fire magnet, and with its short range it never seems to be effective.

    It depends on how much long range fire you have. with a marine army, you have to cover all aspects of battle, with a mix of long and short range weaponry. What weapons are your dreads equipped with? It seems that without the dreads, you have a good mix of long and short range. if most of your dreads are long range, go with the vindicator. If they are short range or melee dreads, go with the predator. Since you have a predator with LC and Heavy bolters, give the other predator the same mix so you have duplicates, and a better chance that you'll have a predator when you need it.

    Overall the Predator is more usable tank, but if you want want Vindicators are excellent at being a fire magnet to help Rhinos live longer.

    under normal circumstances I would have to vote for a vindicator. For "x" more points you can get the most effective pie plate the marines have available to them. Although for anything below 1000pts I wouldn't touch most tanks...except a predator. So, in conclusion, the best choice would be the vindi.

    A Predator's my first choice as well (I absolutely love that tank!), but since you've already got one, the Vindicator rounds out your armoured forces nicely.

    Although a matched pair of Preds would make for a nicely fearsome armoured spearhead, too... Go for either one, really!

    I'd go with a Predator. The Vindicator usually ends up as a fire magnet no matter what you do and having a second Predator will make the one that you already have that much more survivable.

    i suggest Vindicator for one reason. Pretty much everything except the dev squad is made for CC, and hence, rushing. honestly, it'll be better to get the vindicator so you can rush it forward w/ you other troops and get a S10 AP2 pieplate. Its better than S9 AP2 shots. I do realize that it has a short range, but with damn near everything in your army rushing forward, hes gonna have to split his firepower.
